Jared Allen, defensive end for the Carolina Panthers, may be needing surgery for his foot injury against the Seattle Seahawks. The surgery will probably mark the end of Allen’s season, suggesting that Allen will be missing the Panthers’ playoff and possibly the NFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl. Allen will be having an x-ray to determine the status of his condition.  

Foot surgery is sometimes necessary. If you are struggling with a foot or ankle condition, talk to one of our podiatrists of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Our doctors can treat your foot and ankle needs.  

When Is Surgery Necessary?

Foot and ankle surgery is generally reserved for cases in which less invasive, conservative procedures have failed to help with the problem. Some of the cases in which surgery may be necessary are:

  • Removing foot deformities like bone spurs and bunions
  • Severe arthritis that has caused bone issues
  • Cosmetic reconstruction

What Types of Surgery Are There?

The type of surgery you receive will depend on the nature of the problem you have. Some of the possible surgeries include:

  • Bunionectomy for painful bunions
  • Surgical fusion for realignment of bones
  • Neuropathy decompression surgery to treat nerve damage

Benefits of Surgery

Although surgery is usually a last resort, it can provide more complete pain relief compared to non-surgical methods and may allow you to finally resume full activity.

Surgical techniques have also become increasingly sophisticated. Techniques like endoscopic surgery allow for smaller incisions and faster recovery times.

If you have any questions, please contact our offices located in San Leandro, Pleasanton, and Los Gatos, CA. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.

The Brisbane Lions will be losing their forward player Josh Green as he recovers from a fractured foot for about 10 weeks. Green had scans to confirm his injury on his right foot, the same foot he had fractured last season. The previous fracture had benched Green for six matches. Green is expected to undergo surgery.

Stress fractures can become painful if left untreated for an extended period of time. If you would like assistance in treating a stress fracture, consult with one of our podiatrists of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Our doctors will attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

Coping with Podiatric Stress Fractures

Stress Fractures occur on the foot and ankle when muscles in these areas weaken as a result of overexertion or underuse.  As a result, the ankles and feet lose support when walking or running from the ground. Since these bones are not protected, they receive the full impact of each step. The stress on the feet causes the bones to form cracks.

What are Stress Fractures?

Stress Fractures are very common among those who are highly active and involved in sports or activities that make excessive use of their legs and feet. Stress fractures are especially common among:

-athletes (gymnasts, tennis players, basketball players)
-runners/joggers
-osteoporosis patients
-those who engage in high-intensity workouts

Stress Fracture Symptoms

Pain from the fractures occur in the area of the fractures, and can be either constant or periodic. The pain is usually sharp or dull, accompanied by swelling and tenderness. Engagement in any kind of high impact activity will exacerbate the pain.

If you have any questions, please contact our offices located in San Leandro, Pleasanton, and Los Gatos, CA. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.

Foot and Ankle InjuriesSenior basketball player Justin Cobbs will be off the court for at least 6-8 weeks after suffering a broken foot. The 6’2 point guard, who broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot, will undergo surgery to have a screw inserted into his foot according to coach Mike Montgomery.

 “No guarantees with the feet,” Montgomery said, “But that’s the smartest course of action and the quickest way to get back. He’s anxious to get going.” Until Cobbs returns, sophomore Tyrone Wallace as well as freshman Sam Singer and walkon Garrett Galvin will be taking Cobb’s position.

Dealing with a broken foot can be a painful ordeal. However, an injury like this can be managed and taken care of by a podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein can examine your broken foot, determine the severity of your injury, and work with you to provide the appropriate treatment options.

Broken Foot Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

A broken foot is caused by one of the bones in the foot ‘breaking’, or fracturing. Bones typically break when the bone is either bended, crushed, or stretched beyond its natural capabilities. Usually the location of the fracture indicates how the break occurred, whether it was through an object, fall, or any other type of injury.  

Common Symptoms of Broken Feet:

· Bruising
· Pain
· Redness
· Swelling
· Blue (foot)
· Numbness
· Cold
· Misshapen
· Cuts
· Deformities

Those who are experiencing any of these symptoms, or suspect that they have a broken foot, should seek medical attention in a center where x-rays can be performed. This is especially urgent if any of the symptoms include numbness, blue coloring, cold feet, cuts, misshapen toes or deformities as these indicate more severe cases.
